url's to jpegs or .psd files

Hi, I have hundreds of url's and need to save them as the jpegs each URL does belong to our catalogue, and I am assuming there is a straightforward way of converting them with some batch action?

To be clear I am converting multiple URLs to jpegs or .Psd files and am looking to do it in a batch process

There must be a way

To be clear, you have a giant list of URLs that link to jpegs and you want to somehow download them and convert them to .psd files? Are these all in a google drive or drop box that you can get bulk or do you have a spreadsheet or are they random links on a web-page?

Assuming the difficult part of this is in just getting all the images offline to your computer...
1. Download a "Scraper" script, browser plugin, or program that is part of your web browser or something separate from photoshop.
2. Use that to download all the URLs to your computer
3. Batch process them locally in Photoshop

It's on a spreadsheet, sorry if I am missing the answer or just not getting it. The link is for if they were in the tabs. 
But ok working on that how would I get all the URLs to open in a new tab?

You are missing the middle step- how to download all of those files. The easiest way would probably be to write an Excel or shell script that calls a program like cURL, or as Max suggests, to use a dedicated download/site scraper program.

I would be tempted to start here - 
Teleport Pro allows users to download and view all the elements of a Web site

I was clearly mistaken and thought it would be a couple of clicks!!

Did you click on any of the links from the google search I posted? The *very first match listed* is a chrome extension that will let you copy-paste your list of URLs into it and download them all at once.

That sounds exactly like what you wanted right?

I have done it I used open multi URLs chrome extension to add the information as text then used Simple mas downloader chrome extension. 
Working towards getting them into Bridge/Photoshop

Thanks for getting me on the right track, I sincerely appreciate it although a feature direct in Adobe would be a good idea on reflection.

There is no "getting them into Photoshop" step. You download files to a folder on your computer (which is not something that Adobe deals with) then you have a folder full of jpeg files. You can do whatever you need from there.

But if there was a function that would help me and I am guessing maybe not you.

How did they get up there in the first place? Why aren't you requesting them from the original source? This isn't a function of Ps... you need to be using an ftp service.

Because I am not a purist and you can only play with URLs you've got.
Funny how a different perspective on problem-solving works I think let us solve a problem and not turn a what was a finished matter into something else. 
"just saying" And a company that prides its self on a complete creative solution might have had a way to directly add a URL into photoshop or any other Adobe product. so, you should have, could have, and all the different ways of achieving a result Adobe was not it.
I recommend you do not spend to much time on WHY and accept a shituation and work with it.

Adobe Bridge has ftp functionality but you would need to write a script to use it. Really, though, downloading a list of files has nothing to do with Photoshop.

Taking a look at the spreadsheet posted earlier, did someone already suggest using FTP access to get the images?
